My most favorite food aroma coming from my oven is apples and cinnamon, my next favorite is banana cake. Oh the wafting that was going on in my kitchen today! To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.
This is a very moist dense banana cake made with shortening, 1 1/4 cups of mashed bananas and a cup of sour cream. The kids loved it! The recipe called for walnuts in the cake but hubby doesn't like them so I decided to make a nutty tasting brown butter glaze to put on top. This little gem came from Taste Of Home website and is totally worth your time. It's easy and delicious, it doesn't get any better than that!

Bananas and Cream Bundt Cake with Brown Butter Glaze
Taste Of Home
1/3 cup shortening
1-1/4 cups Domino® or C&H® Granulated Pure Cane Sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
Domino® or C&H® Pure Cane Powdered Sugar
Directions: In a large bowl, cream the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Add bananas and mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, stirring just until combined. Stir in walnuts. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Yield: 12-16 servings.
